Authors: Roessler PP, Bornemann R, Jacobs C, Pflugmacher R, Trost M, Hölscher-Doht S, Jansen H, Frey SP Abstract So far, there has been no clear explanation of the pathophysiological relationships in the development of HO. There is little experimental data dealing with the post-traumatic inflammatory response in terms of a balance between the repair of damaged muscle cells and the opposite response in its development. There are numerous indications regarding possible predisposing factors, such as existence of surrounding tissue hypoxia or the function of pro-angiogenic (VEGF e.g.) and osteoinductive (BMP e.g.)...

This study uses data from the 2012 National Inpatient Sample to determine if mortality, length of stay, and discharge disposition are different between rural and urban American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) with alcohol abuse, depression, diabetes, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Results show no difference in mortality between groups. Alcohol abuse, depression, and diabetes are less prevalent in rural AI/ANs, and rural patients have shorter lengths of stay and fewer chronic conditions, diagnoses, and procedures. Finally, urban patients are discharged to short-term hospitals or skilled nursing facilities at higher...

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychiatric disorder characterized by intrusive symptoms, avoidance of trauma reminders, negative thoughts and mood, and alterations in arousal and reactivity that affects approximately 8% of U.S. military veterans in their lifetimes (Wisco et al., 2016). There is increasing interest in identifying genetic markers for PTSD, and understanding how these markers may be moderated by environmental and psychosocial risk and protective factors (e.g., Mota et al., 2018).

This study assessed the phenomenon of sleep state misperception with regard to its prevalence and potential causes. For this purpose, 255  Bundeswehr soldiers who were admitted as psychiatric patients with sleep disorders were examined at the Bundeswehr Hospital of Hamburg. The symptoms of sleep state misperception are a consistently negative subjective appraisal of one’s own sleep. Objective measurements using electroencephalogra phy (EEG), however, suggest the opposite, namely that sleep is objectively undisturbed. This discrepancy was seen in 52% of the examined patients in an assessment of eight empiric...

Publication date: Available online 16 October 2018Source: Physiology &BehaviorAuthor(s): Siobhan Robinson, Christa C. Christ, Margaret M. Cahill, Sara J. Aldrich, Elisa Taylor-YeremeevaAbstractMany people will experience at least one traumatic event in their lifetime, with up to 20% developing Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or PTSD-like symptoms. In addition, the likelihood that females will develop PTSD after trauma is more than twice that of males. Despite its prevalence, current treatment strategies for trauma victims are limited and substantial portions of affected individuals remain resistant to treatment s...
